Titre : Support to Safe Spaces for Women, Youth and Children in Gaza Strip

Pays/Région : Autorité Palestinienne

Durée : 01.01.2019 - 31.12.2021

In 2019-2020, Switzerland will support the Culture and Free Thought Association (CFTA) and the Culture and Arts Association (NAWA) in the Gaza Strip to provide quality educational and cultural services in safe learning environments for children, youth and women, including persons with disabilities. This contribution aims to enhance the inclusion of marginalized groups in local development and in community-led initiatives, and to prevent wider spreading of violent extremism and radicalisation. Projet en bref
* Contexte : Children, girls, women and youth, including persons with disabilities have been particularly affected by the cumulative effect of a series of man-made constraints on the population of the Gaza Strip (full closure for 12 years, 3 major episodes of armed conflict, economic collapse, and sharp decrease in external funding). With scarcity of available natural resources (land, water), demographic growth and lack of economic perspectives, the current socio-economic situation is bleak and a de-development process is underway : every 2nd person lives under the poverty line and unemployment rate peeks at 53% (70% for youth).
* Objectifs  : Empowered women and youth, including persons with disabilities, have an increased voice in local development processes and community-led initiatives in the area of impact of supported educational and cultural institutions.
* Groupes cibles  : In Khan Younis area (CFTA) : 15’000 children, 2’000 youth, 12’000 women & parents. In Deir Al Balah area (NAWA) : 7’560 children, 280 youths, 360 parents & women, 160 educators, including persons with disabilities. The intervention will also serve the communities, service providers and Municipalities in the area of impact.
